Presented by DeSoto Caverns at DeSoto Caverns

Historic Caverns: DeSoto Caverns Family Fun Park is one of the most beautiful and historic show caves in the US. Located just 36 miles southeast of Birmingham down Highway 280, you will learn about the prehistoric Indians that lived and died in the caverns, Confederate soldiers that mined gunpowder, early Indian traders that visited, and moonshine making during prohibition times. Open year-round with a cave temperature of 60 degrees, the park offers campgrounds, a gift shop with a cafe, a scenic picnic area, and pavilions near waterfalls, streams, and ponds. A laser light, sound, and water show is included in every cavern tour. We also offer over 20 outside attractions that include a maze, gem panning, crystal find, wacky water golf, archery, and more. Stop by today!

“Wacky” Park Attractions: Always something fun for everyone! With over 20 “wacky” attractions – including our three-quarter acre Lost Trail Maze, Panning for Gemstones, and the always popular Wacky Water Golf – we’re sure you’ll have a great time at DeSoto Caverns Family Fun Park. Attractions are open year round with the exception of the water attractions which are open April through September. We hope you choose DeSoto Caverns Family Fun Park for your next adventurous getaway!
